Great Big Green Ideas

Green advice website is running another GREAT BIG GREEN IDEAS competition for festival fans to suggest new ideas to promote environmental friendliness at festivals and get events greener. Last year's competition produced some excellent ideas – from banning sauce sachets (what’s wrong with a bottle?) to promoting green travel like coaches and cycling to using bio-digesters to reduce waste and was a smash hit with Festival Organisers who have started to adopt many of the ideas sent in. The best ideas will be published here on Virtual Festivals and on

This year's prize will be a fantastic festival goodie bag with an exclusive souvenir Glastonbury Festival crew T-shirt as well top prizes kindly donated by Latitude, Leeds, Reading and T in the Park!

Agreenerfestivals co-founder Ben Challis explained that "Some of the very best ideas that improve festivals come from fans and its time we ask people who go to events how they want to get greener. Its fairly shocking just how many tents are still abandoned at festivals and these, along with fan’s personal carbon footprints from travel are just two of the things we want everyone to think about. Sometimes really simple ideas are the best so any ideas on reducing waste, recycling and preventing pollution would be really welcome as well."

For your chance to win this money-can't-buy prize and make a positive difference to the world, email your Great Green Ideas to (in English please) before the closing date of 25th May 2009.
